In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 5600 are noticeably better than the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.

The Graphics 4600 was released over three years more recently than the Quadro FX 5600, and so the Graphics 4600 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the Quadro FX 5600 when running the latest games.

The Quadro FX 5600 has 1536 MB video memory, but the Graphics 4600 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop has 20 Shader Processing Units and the Quadro FX 5600 has 128. However, the actual shader performance of the Graphics 4600 is 100 and the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 5600 is 77. The Graphics 4600 having 23 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the Quadro FX 5600 performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Graphics 4600 transistor size technology is 68 nm (nanometers) smaller than the Quadro FX 5600. This means that the Graphics 4600 is expected to run massively cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the Quadro FX 5600.

The HD Graphics 4600 Desktop requires 88 Watts to run and the Quadro FX 5600 requires 171 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Graphics 4600 and a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the Quadro FX 5600. The Quadro FX 5600 requires 83 Watts more than the Graphics 4600 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 5600 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Graphics 4600.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop are Integrated Graphics in some of Intel's Desktop Haswell Processors.

Architecture
The Haswell GT2 Core includes support for DirectX 11.1, OpenCL 1.2 and OpenGL 4.0. Additionally, it also offers better Decoding Performance, when compared to its Predecessors.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed GT2 which offers 20 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 2 ROPs. The Central Unit Initially Runs at 200MHz and goes up to 1250MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
The GPU Shares the System's RAM which varies from System to System. Typically, the GPU reserves 1.7GB. Depending on whether or not the system's RAM is Dual-Channeled, it can access either a 64-bit or 128-bit memory interface. The operating memory clock also depends on which speed the System's RAM is running and is limited by the highest operating speed that the Processor supports. In this case, it is 800MHz.
It is then obvious the Memory Bandwidth depends on a lot of factors and thus this Graphics Card performance may vary heavily from system to system.

Performance
The Most Powerful Variant Offers Performance similar to a dedicated GeForce GT 220.
Select the Specific Version you have of this Graphics Card According to your Processor for a more Accurate Rank and experience using our tools.

System Suggestions
We recommend 4GB of RAM for a system with Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop.
A revolutionary unified architecture, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5600 and 4600 graphics boards deliver optimized application performance. Combining the industry's most advanced feature set, including largest frame buffers, with a C programming environment, Quadro solutions solve the most complex problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 5600 and 4600 enables next generation applications with unprecedented image quality.
